A man who shot a dog was jailed and placed on probation when he appeared in Rocky Mountain House provincial court on Wednesday.

Travis Henry Sunchild, 22, of Rocky was jailed for eight months and placed on probation for a year for the early May incident on the Sunchild First Nation reserve northwest of Rocky.

Sunchild was also issued with a 10-year prohibition on the use or possession of firearms and ammunition.

Several weapon charges were withdrawn.

Sunchild was one of several people arrested after multiple gunshots were fired on the reserve, resulting in a standoff with RCMP.

The initial report to police had shots fired through the window of a reserve home, narrowly missing a youth about 1:30 a.m.

Five teens were also arrested and three of them were charged with a total of seven weapon’s related charges.

Their names are protected under terms of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The trio, aged 15 to 17, all return to youth court on Sept. 21.
